El Bosque Mágico

El Bosque de Oma

The work follows the modern art trend called “Land art”. Most of the trees are Monterrey pines. Displays the harmony between nature and human presence by painting on the trunks of trees, human figures, animals and geometric shapes, some of which are visible only from certain positions.
